Me and Mrs Moon
By Helen Bate
A powerful graphic novel illustrating the strength of relationships across the generations and gently introducing the theme of dementia
Maisie and Dylan love Mrs Moon. She picks them up from school every day and they have great fun together. But then things start to get strange: a coat without sleeves, old socks as Christmas decorations, a missing dog, an imaginary folk band…
The children want to help, but what should they do for the best?
Love, loyalty and resilience shine through this powerful graphic story of two children determined to help their friend, Mrs Moon.
